For the seventh year in a row, the readers of Cary Magazine have voted Atlantic Tire & Service their favorite place for automotive care. The three-store business will receive the lifestyle publication’s Maggy Award for “Best Mechanic.” Since 2006, Cary Magazine has provided its readers with an opportunity to nominate and vote for their picks for the “Best of the Best” in categories such as restaurants, services, sports, shopping, media and lifestyle. Since the Maggy Awards started, Atlantic Tire & Service has won “Best Mechanic” a total of seven times along with one honorable mention.

“We are honored to receive the Maggy Award again this year,” says Anthony Blackman, president. “We are grateful for the ongoing support we receive by our community, and we will continue our commitment to provide our customers with high-quality customer service and automotive care.”

The folks at Atlantic Tire and Service want to empower drivers as well. Offered at all three area locations, the shop’s popular “ABCs of Car Care” class gives attendees safety tips and money-saving advice while explaining the importance of regular maintenance.

“We give them safe, good and fun information,” said Nancy Seymour, who has led the classes for about four years. “Because we’ve all been there. It’s not like you are born knowing the answers to all these questions.”

Our experts take us through some regular checks, and suggest helpful skills for any car owner — new or experienced. The checks should be performed at regular intervals, once a month or every other month.

If you have more questions about your car, we are happy to help.
